All images should be tagged with information concerning their copyright and licensing status. It is illegal for us to use images on OrthodoxWiki for which we do not have permission or which are not usable under the fair use provisions of United States copyright law. Here are some tags that can be included for images, followed by the notice that will be included:

How to include the tag

When you upload the image, there is a "Summary" box in which you can put the tags. Additionally, you can go to the image's description page—either by clicking on an image in an entry or by going to the description link included after you upload the image—then click the "edit" tab at the top of the page, and add in the appropriate information.
